Quatrième de couverture
"Jim Hardy is the most knowledgeable teacher in golf. No other instructor has his understanding of golf swing techniques and what makes them work. Any golfer, regardless of ability, who has the opportunity to listen and work with Jim will benefit and improve."
--Peter Jacobsen, Champions Tour player and winner of seven PGA Tour championships
Voted one of "America's 50 Greatest Teachers" by Golf Digest and ranked among the "Top 100 Teachers" list by Golf magazine, Jim Hardy has been fixing the swings of professional and amateur golfers since 1977. In The Plane Truth for Golfers, he makes his groundbreaking concepts available to you for the first time.
Hardy's earth-shattering philosophy is quite simple: Everything you've learned about swing fundamentals is wrong. There are two sets of fundamentals to the swing, not one. There is the one-plane swing, for more athletic players, and the two-plane swing, suitable for players of all abilities. Every player falls neatly into one of these two categories and one of them is guaranteed to work for you.
In this easy-to-follow handbook, complete with dozens of instructional photographs, Hardy breaks down the two methods into simple steps you're sure to learn in no time. Once you get a grip on Hardy's plan, you'll be able to:
- Determine whether you're a one-plane or two-plane swinger and how to avoid the dangerous mixture of having elements of both in your swing
- Step into the proper starting position for both swings
- Understand the real truth about the backswing
- Master a whole new technique for the downswing and defeat the competition
- PLUS: You'll also get plenty of exercises and drills to help you perfect the proper on-plane movements and correct common faults
Like no other how-to book, The Plane Truth for Golfers exposes the flaws of current golf instruction and reveals the secret to playing good golf.

Both "The Plane Truth for Golfers" books were my breakthrough - I own both versions. Each book presents the same information but with somewhat different verbiage. However, I use drills from both books.
I have read over 75 golf instructional books. But once I understood the different (and opposing) swing types, I simply removed the two-plane elements from my one-plane swing and things got much better INSTANTLY. Furthermore, I DIDN'T need a swing with "perfect" form to enjoy the game. All I need is to make PROPER ball contact - with repeatability - using the imperfect one-plane swing I have. In the final results, perfect golf swing form isn't required. Its about proper ball contact at impact with higher than average consistency.
In addition to these two books, I bought "The Plane Truth" DVD set (4 videos) from SolidContact[dot]net website, and the Orange Whip for proper feel / sequencing training (see Jim Hardy's Orange Whip video on YouTube). All combined, they are cheaper than the price of two golf swing lessons, which could do more harm than good. Additional benefit: I can watch the DVD over and over when I need a refresher. No cost.
Hint: I watched the complete video on first viewing, then used the "next chapter" button on my DVD remote to skip instruction on swing type that doesn't apply to me.
Once you understand the elements of YOUR swing type, you can take videos of your swing from proper viewing positions (belt/waist high from both front and back, making sure to capture golf club face at top of backswing) to identify any faults that you still have. Important: What you "feel" in your swing often isn't what you're actually doing. A slow-motion camera would be best but even phone videos will be extremely valuable. Hint: You can try swinging in you back yard using Whiffle balls to work on proper form, then go to the driving range to check your actual ball flights.
Work on one thing at a time, then use the drills in the book to fix them. I think this DIY approach is better than becoming dependent on an "uninformed" golf pro every time you need a fix. BIG $$$. However, if you choose to hire a golf swing instructor, make sure they teach YOUR swing type (one-plane/ two-plane) or they will really mess you up.
Also, seek out a tutorial with CURRENT information on ball flight analysis and their root cause. IMPORTANT: Modern ball flight analysis (using slow-motion video) proves the "club face angle" - AT IMPACT - is the most dominate element of the "initial" ball flight direction - with "club face path" being the less dominate influence of the two. Any tutorial that has these two key points REVERSED is outdated and will greatly hinder your progress. (Research this yourself or test this concept using your putter.) WARNING: There are Golf Pros out there still teaching with outdated information, misdiagnosing ball fights / swing faults. Again, they can mess you up!
The only Golf Bible left standing is The Plane Truth for Golfers by Jim Hardy. The rest are just contributors to Hardy's prescription for the 2 golf swings. (the one plane and the Two plane) Sorry Ben Hogan you have been dethroned.
I have read books that say the exact opposite to never do this or that or vs vs do this or that. I have also found for me that some times doing exactly what a certain teacher says to never do is exactly what works best for me. But thanks to Hardy's work I am not the slightest bit confused by any of this instruction or contradiction.
If you want to actually solve your quest to figure out what swing works for you then get this book. It is not just another same old same old. It is the real Golf swing Bible.
All golf instruction no matter how contradictory will make perfect sense when viewed from Hardy's work.
Big picture update:
Golf instructors mean well but harm students. This is a powerful concept to grasp!
This was said during the seminar: Body Swing Connection - Titleist Performance Institute @ 2011 PGA Show, by TPI co-founders Dr. Greg Rose and Dave Phillips. (see YouTube video - very worthwhile viewing)
There are three books that form a rather complete package for someone trying to finally achieve a repeating swing and stop screwing it up.
#1 The Golf Swing Bible since 2006 = The Plane Truth For Golfers by Jim Hardy.
There are 2 books that present the information in 2 different fashions and/or DVD set (Library like I did) I like best The Plane Truth for Golfers Master Class: Advanced Lessons for Improving Swing Technique and Ball Control for the One- and Two-Plane Swings Get all three as this work is the new Golf swing BIBLE - PERIOD! Sorry Ben Hogan. Ben Hogan's the 5 lessons is great for a one plane swinger but will screw up a two plane swinger. The work by Jim Hardy can and will once and for all help you/stop you from screwing up your swing by realizing that there are 2 different swings with 2 movement prescriptions.
#2 The supplement to the Hardy "Bible" expands and illustrates and reveals major components and nuances = Your Perfect Swing by Jim Suttie
He reveals power sources. Turners, coilers, rotators, sliders, high swings, low swings, late releasers, early releasers, open or shut face releasers etc. Very valuable compliment to Hardy's work.
#3 How to Learn Golf by Harry Hurt, He teaches you about all those who are teaching you how to swing. What methods they are advocating and what categories all that instruction falls into. A very valuable resource for trying to sort out the instruction that appears everywhere. In the end you can focus on what you want and avoid what is not for you.
Outstanding book for a golfer set on improvement and trying to make heads or tails out of all the swing advice confusion. He took lessons from the worlds best at very high cost. But the book can also apply to books, TV and magazine "lessons"
From page 24: "No matter which approach you choose, you need to know where your instructors are coming from, which of the major methods they advocate, and the advantages and disadvantages of each. Otherwise you are likely to find yourself bouncing from one pro to another, perpetually trapped in a state of confusion and frustration as you are inundated with conflicting advice and diametrically opposite swing thoughts. No one knows better that I do after taking lessons from twenty-one teaching pros in twenty-four months. Instead of suffering the pain and confusion of running a similar instructional gauntlet, you can simply read this book."
Another helpful book is Lowdown From the Lesson Tee : Correcting 40 of Golf's Most Misunderstood Teaching Tips by David Glenz
The book takes an unusual approach. Essentially it says all full swings fall into one of two categories: one-plane and two-plane. The authors describe each with a pronounced preference for the former. One-plane swings seem best for the flexible and athletic young and seem to be the majority preference of touring pros. Famous exponents might be Moe Norman and Ben Hogan. The two-plane swing is oriented more to the amateur who has passed his most flexible years and is willing to sacrifice power for accuracy and ease on the body. There are a number of famous touring pros who used this method. Also, to my eyes, it is very similar to the "square to square" method promoted by Doug Tewell. And, that's the rub.
While a number of touring pros say that each person's swing is different because of body type etc. and that there is value in following instinct -- to an extent [Gary Player, elsewhere]. The "teaching theme" of the book is that you can choose either method and stick with it, but that mixing parts of each leads to disastrous results. This is where I disagree. It may be true for some combinations of factors. But if you watch any tournaments you will see players combining elements from each method. These combinations appear successful for MOST of those you watch, from Tiger Woods to Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk to Bubba Watson, etc., etc.
So what is really good about the book? First it describes each end of the spectrum in minute detail with good, if sparse, illustration. Second, it dissects each type of swing into each phase from stance to finish in great detail. Third, at the end of each section it has several, usually four, drills you can do specific for the type of swing being described. I really liked these.
So what is wrong? I've just started playing again after 40 years. I do know what "open face" is vs. "closed face" but maybe not so much about open and closed stance nor the distinction between a pull and a draw or hook, a push and a slice. So, first I wish that an extensive glossary had been included. Second, I feel that the content is much more oriented toward the tee than the short game and might not be so helpful for the latter, but I don't know yet. Third, although nicely written, I think the text is woefully wordy. But, mitigating this are the nicely done summaries at the end of major sections. You might get by reading these alone (and the drills).
So why do I think this book should be in YOUR library? Most golf books present their "method," such as "stack and twist" and theirs alone. You can't tell what is and is not compatible with what you have been doing, or why it might be the method for you. This book describes the CHOICES you can make for the method which works best for you. As a reference and a guide for remedying common problems on the tee, it seems very valuable.
Simple, easy. If you're a two-plane person using a one plane grip, stance or posture you'll never figure it out.
End your frustration already.
Bought his next book, but didn't love it as much. That one is Master Class, too much for me. This one was perfect.
I was average golfer, shooting inconsistently in the mid-hi 80's. After using this book it's more consistent and more 81-82 on average, and no more mystery. This book and consistent ball position changed golf for me.
